The largest 9/11 Memorial Stair Climb took place at Lambeau Field. Nearly 2,000 area residents, firefighters, and local businesses came together to pay tribute to the firefighters who gave their lives at the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001. The stair climb raised over $85,000 to benefit the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation (NFFF) and support the families of fallen firefighters.
Stair climb participants, including some who traveled from throughout the region, were invited to climb the equivalent of 110 stories – the height of the fallen World Trade Center towers – on the steps of Lambeau Field. There was a very large turnout this year in memory of the 15th anniversary of the World Trade Center tragedy. Compared to last year’s event, the number of participants, as well as funds raised, more than doubled. In a demonstration of solemn unity, those involved created a meaningful occasion to remember and honor firefighters who made the ultimate sacrifice.
